ODYSSEO This one rides on horsepower all the way. The brainchild of Cirque du Soleil cofounder Normand Latourelle, it’s a transporting spectacle that imaginatively and elegantly fuses highly stylized equestrian arts with Cirque-style atmospherics, acrobatics, and aerial stunts. Extended through Sept. 22. Cavalia. Assembly Square, Somerville. 866-999-8111, www.cavalia.net

WICKED The hard-to-resist musical about the witches of Oz is back, in a production featuring an excellent performance by Jenn Gambatese as Glinda, Alison Luff in the role of Elphaba, and none other than John Davidson as the Wizard. With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman. Through Sept. 15. Broadway in Boston. At Boston Opera House. 800-982-2787, www.broadwayinboston.com
